MSA Bambino kart racing for competitors as young as seven could be introduced from 2018 after a trial race at Buckmore Park proved successful.
Eden Spanswick won the 10-lap observed race by just over six seconds from Jack Cunningham, while Mason Bishop completed the podium. The entire field of 13 drivers finished the race on the same lap.
Cheryl Lynch, MSA Kart Executive, said: “The young drivers and their parents all seemed to enjoy a brilliant day at Buckmore Park. The racing was superb, the atmosphere was one of great camaraderie and we will now evaluate the possibility of introducing an MSA Bambino race championship for 2018. We would like to thank Steve Holman and Martin Bean for their support in hosting the race.”
Zip Kart’s Dan Parker, the event coordinator, added: “I was delighted with the outcome of the trial race at Buckmore Park . All of the drivers did a fantastic job and the historic event produced thrilling close and fair racing all day. I would like to thank the MSA and Buckmore Park for all their assistance in making the event such a huge success.”
The Buckmore Park meeting also featured the season finale of the existing MSA Bambino Kart Championship, which runs to a time trial format. The MSA congratulates Archie Clark on winning the 2017 title
